They were bridges without the lateral protections, on which were held clashes whose purpose was to throw the opponent in the water. They were banned because they became too violent.

A little far from the center of Piazza San Marco and from the opposite bank beyond the train station in the Dorsoduro district, this bridge is remembered because at that time deprived of railings, was the point where they collided with punches two opposing factions, that of Castellani (Cap and red scarf) and the Nicolotti (cap and black scarf). The fights took place from September to Christmas from 1292, but were suspended in 1705 after in addition to the punches came to the knives and stones. On the bridge are still visible the footsteps that indicated to the rivals, where to position themselves. Feature under the bridge the boat that sells fruit and vegetables. I enclose photos.
